Fact or fiction: What you need to know about drugs

Before you shrug off National Drug Facts Week as one that doesn’t apply to you, stick with us for just a minute: An increasing number...

Marijuana has no addictive chemicals or components. It *CAN* be habit-forming for a small number of people who use it, but it is not the same thing as an addiction. And the number is tiny. Billions of people smoke marijuana, and they have all throughout history, and not a single person has ever died from it. (It would take an impossible amount of marijuana to overdose on it, and a sealed room, and you'd suffocate before you OD-ed.) Marijuana has way more benefits than it does dangers, and it's been proven to help many, many disease, including chronic pain, glaucoma, nausea, eating disorders, depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, and it aids cancer patients and the sufferers of chronic diseases. It also *CAN* have negative effects on teens, but those are rare and not life-threatening. It is not a dangerous drug, just one that needs to no longer be illegal so it can be openly studied and utilized, because it has the potential to change so much.

Not that I'm saying drugs are good or I support it, but the first fact is technically wrong. Marijuana has no addictive factor in its ingredients. The addictive part of it is all in the person's brain. That's why most people use it.
Of course, it CAN still kill brain cells and it is scientifically proven that it makes you dumber, so it's still a pretty bad drug. :\

I got 70% of the questions correct on the quiz, and 80% correct in the Braniac Round. I guessed on a couple of them. (:

I have a problem. At lunch, we're only allowed to have six people at a table. We have nine people because we started out with six and invited people who were sitting alone over to sit with us. We agreed that the original six, which I was a part of, should stay, but this one girl, Ari, who wasn't one of the original six, keeps on saying how she shouldn't leave and how all of us are "meanies". We asked the teacher if we could pull up another table, but he said the other teachers would yell at us. What should we do?



Hey Girl, what a tough sitch. Try claiming a nearby table so you can lean over and chat. Then rotate seats so everyday different people in your group get to sit at the main table.

My friend told me her mom has been slapping her and she hasn't told any trusted adult so I told her to tell the counsler BUT I don't think she will and she will kill me if I do!! HELP ME

Hey girl, keep encouraging your friend to talk to your school counselor.  You can also suggest she call the National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center (you can find their number in this article) or the Nineline, an anonymous counseling hotline (1-800-999-9999).

Hi, i was wondering if there are any fruits that can make you loose or gain weight thanks!

Hey girlie,

You can't really compare all fruits to each other in terms of nutrition, because some are water-based and some have more carbs. But all fruits and veggies are good for you, so try eating a variety of them!

Thanks a lot for posting this, GL! Drug use is an extremely widespread and important issue. The more websites that post serious articles like this, the more teens that might listen and realize that drug use is not worth the consequences it causes, especially for teens. Why ruin your life when you have so much more to live for?
